(PRESS RELEASE) RANCHO CORDOVA, CA — VSP Ventures announced the acquisition of Sacramento Optometric Group, located in Sacramento, California. The practice has served the region for 90 years, providing comprehensive eye care to generations of families.

Founded in 1931 by the late George Takahashi, O.D., the Sacramento Optometric Group has been co-owned by Kenneth Sakazaki, O.D., and Katrina Gallardo-Chang, O.D. since 1987 and 2017, respectively.

“While we had offers from other practice transition groups, we were confident that our practice would be in the best hands with VSP Ventures,” said Dr. Sakazaki. “Our relationship with VSP dates back to its founding in the 1950s, and their care-focused philosophy positions us to meet the needs of our patients for years to come.”

Sacramento Optometric Group specializes in a wide array of eye care services, including comprehensive eye exams, management of ocular diseases and emergency treatment. The practice will continue to operate under the same name, and Drs. Sakazaki and Gallardo-Chang as well as their practice staff will remain in their roles.
